About this Job
For more than 25 years, the Functional Food Center (FFC) has promoted research for further development and commercialization of functional foods for chronic diseases. Join us in the innovative work we do- either by organizing conferences, writing textbooks, or publishing peer-reviewed articles in the journal of Functional Foods in Health and Disease (FFHD). We are looking for dedicated and detail-oriented interns who are eager to learn and hone new skills. We especially welcome students who are looking for an internship with academic credit.
FFC helps students and recent graduates learn more about functional food science and gain excellent research, writing, and editing skills. All internships are flexible and based on intern’s objectives. Plus, since all internships are virtual and remote, we accept students from all around the US and cater to their work availability.
As an intern, you will increase your knowledge on the topic of functional food and chronic disease. Working with the journal and providing content on the subject to professionals will improve your communication and writing skills. This internship is a great way to see a different side of the nutrition field.
Through this internship, you will gain invaluable experience with the scientific research community, functional foods and bioactive compounds, and communication skills to thrive in a variety of career opportunities related to biology, food, nutrition, health, media studies, and more. We look forward to connecting with you about this exciting opportunity with the Functional Food Center.
As you finish your internship you will receive:
1) Certificate for Internship
2) Certificate for a free 12-month membership for the Academic Society for Functional Foods and Bioactive Compounds
3) One free conference registration within 12 months of internship
